There is no current way to do -SETs in IA+ (as of 8202M). I think due to it creating a security concern. Like Chuck was saying, the only way to facilitate custom variable expressions in this way to IA+ users is to create global variables in a fex somewhere and point to them within your edasprof.prf file on the Reporting Server. We've got a huge set of them for dates that we've made available to our IA+ users. It works really well. Global == &&, local == &.
8.2.02M (production), 8.2.02M (test), Windows 10, all outputs.

Or use a Reporting Object if you only want reports or diagrams, do your -SET there in the preprocessing part and create a report or diagram on the reporting object. This way you can also use local variables.
